I'm originally from Colorado but now live in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I am a Kadampa Buddhist and spend a good chunk of each week meditating and going to Buddhist-related classes. I value kindness and compassion and strive to be this way myself. I live a pretty simple life.
I've traveled to many countries but my most regular destination has been to countries in Central America (all of them except Belize) and also to Mexico. Lately most of my travel has been for Buddhist retreats (most recently I went to Brazil and Portugal).
I work as a consultant doing writing, training, evaluation, and design. I'm fluent in Spanish so a lot of my work relates to community engagement with Spanish-speaking immigrant communities.
